(MEMPHIS)  Police arrested one of their own yet again. Officer Cornelius Monger has been on the force for six years, now he’s behind bars for raping a 16-year old relative. He was picked up at an apartment in Raleigh, around 3pm, Tuesday.

Monger’s not the only one in his family facing these charges. 60-year-old Henry Monger was arrested last month.

According to an affidavit filed in court he was also charged with raping a 16-year old girl at his home in southeast Memphis.

Police Director Toney Armstrong said, “It sickens me to know that an officer of the law has violated the innocence of a child. This individual calls himself a Memphis Police Officer; I call him a criminal.”
